Right, having resurrected this idea temporarily...I do seem to remember being told off on here, for a lightweight hydrogen storage system, being a bag, in a bag, etc,

Each layer inwards is pumped up to a higher pressure allowing the innermost bag to be very highly pressurised without blowing the recursive bag to bits.

I mention this now, as I finally got around to reading Seveneves, and Stephenson mentions a similar system for cosmonaut's rest area. Now, he could just be making it all up...

       If you have ten concentric bags, each with a wall thickness of 0.1mm, your central bag will be able to store the same pressure as a bag with a wall thickness of 1mm. (Or less, for some failure modes.)

       Yes but you could have 10 bags of 1mm each. And where would you be then, eh?
